As a kid, going through the obligatory mummy obsession, book after book on Egypt mentioned the Petry museum. So many of the really cool objects were in this museum’s collection and I dreamed of going to it. (Okay, I was a nerdy kid!)
Well, I finally went and it was just as cool as I hoped. It’s kind of an old style museum with loads of cabinets and very dry, academic labels (even for the phallic objects, which is quite funny). There’s just so many objects from mummies and sculptures to spindles and needles.
I spent hours there (again thanks to the patience of Lenny!) taking loads of photos and would love to go back again.
